Does being part of a great team working together to achieve goals sound like it’s right for you? Would you like to contribute your creative ideas and design skills towards an exceptional experience? Do you enjoy working in a fast-paced exciting environment where no two days are ever the same? Science North is seeking to fill the following internship opportunities. Internships are one year in length and will start as soon as possible. All applicants must meet the following internship program eligibility requirements. Candidates must be recent graduates (within 3 years) from an accredited college or university, legally entitled to work in Canada, not previous participants in an internship program and the internship must represent a first-time employment opportunity in their field of study. All positions require exceptional interpersonal and communication (oral and written) skills and the ability to work independently and in a collaborative team environment.
The Indigenous Initiatives Intern will provide support to Science North as it develops and delivers public programming in informal settings across the North. The intern will play a key role in working towards expanded and deepened engagement with Indigenous audiences. Through developing a new Summer Science Days curriculum, the intern will ensure the programming is full of new and exciting activity offerings relevant to First Nations youth. They will also be responsible for delivering e-workshops to First Nation schools, which will broaden our reach and ensure we are staying connected with communities across the North. Their role will also include organizing and optimizing use of information we currently have assembled for our Indigenous Initiatives department. The successful candidate will have a degree/diploma in science or education and a willingness to travel. First Nations, Metis and Inuit candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.
